29 DAYS LEFT to help Heritage Spanish program

This is a special cause. While it's not local, I think it's an important one. I invite you to take a look at and see if you agree.

You see, there are approximately 44 million Latinos in the States, but not all of them are truly fluent in their families' language. And it's a popular misconception that Latinos who can carry on a conversation in Spanish can also write well in the language. Many Latinos who grew up here didn't actually study Spanish in school; instead, they picked up colloquial material at home with los papás. That works great in conversational settings, but if these Latinos are hired as bilingual employees, they may lack when it comes to reading/writing the language.

This teacher needs just $155 left, within the next month, to reach her goal of distributing dictionaries for her Heritage Spanish students. Every little bit counts!

>>If you agree this is a neat way to help, please forward this post to others you think might want to reach out.
